And in these thousands of years r

ters, what was happening in the
rest of the world?

To the south of the civilized

rica, the negro was making a slow-

seem, under the stimulus of inva-

Mediterranean regions, bringing
with them in succession cultivation
and the use of metals.
These white men came to the
black by two routes; across the
Sahara to the west as Berbct and
Tuaregs and the like, to mix with
white races as the Fulas; and also
by way of the Nile, where the Ba-

that dominated the minds and lives i
of these strang priesthoods. The

The Maya writing was not only
carven on stone but painted agd

Records Kept itn Mring.
In Peru the beginnings of writing
were superseded by a curious and
complicated method of keeping
records by means of knots tied
upon strings of various colors and
shapes. It is said that even laws
and orders could be conveyed by
this code. These string bundles
were culled qulpus, but though
quipus are still to bo found in col-
lections, the art of reading them
is altogether lost. The Chinese
histories, Mr. L. Y. Chen informs
us, state that a similar method of
record by knots was used in China
before the invention of writing
there. The Peruvians also got to
making maps and the use of count-
When the Spaniards came to,
America, the Mexicans knew
nothing of the Peruvians, nor the
Peruvians of the Mexicans. What-
ever links had ever existed were
lost and forgotten. The Mexicans
had never heard of the potato,
which was a principal article of
Peruvian diet. In 5000 B. C. the
Sumertans and Egyptians probably
knew as little of one another.
America lagged in fact, 6,000 years
behind the old world.
